I'm in the UK, I've been forwarding all my junk email to The National Cyber Security Centre,

https://www.gov.uk/report-suspicious-emails-websites-phishing

I've put their reporting email address into my contacts and have been manually forwarding each junk email as it arrives, they're happy to accept anything suspicious, they say send as much as you like!

https://www.ncsc.gov.uk/collection/phishing-scams/report-scam-email

"If you have received an email which you’re not quite sure about, forward it to report@phishing.gov.uk Forward us as many suspicious emails as you like. Send us emails that feel suspicious, even if you're not certain they're a scam - we can check."

the combination of adding each junk mail senders address to the 'block sender and domain' list in Outlook, plus forwarding each junk mail to the NCSC seems to have completely killed my junk mail problem,

what I'd like to know is: if there is a way of setting up items that arrive in the junk mail folder to automatically forward to this address, or: could a feature be added to Thunderbird where you could set up automatic forwarding of junk, a box where you fill in the appropriate reporting address for your region/country?
